This CDKN project has been commissioned to help FCFA understand the political economy of long-lived decision-making in Africa. There is a critical need to understand institutional decision-making structures on the continent and to develop an approach that ensures that improvements in climate science for Africa are ‘decision relevant’ and integrated into relevant developmental decisions.
This study will provide a focused analysis to link a development-first approach to identifying adaptation challenges in Africa with fundamental and applied climate science produced by FCFA research consortia. The ultimate objective is to ensure that research feeds into select economic development decision-making processes. Read the CDKN project page here.
